Very nice course.

Great layout and great staff. You can tell they keep the course in great shape. I played right after a heavy rain so the bunkers were hard but that was to be expected. You can tell though even from the rain that they rake the bunkers every day.

Friendly staff, great layout

This was my first time playing at Speidel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was in really great shape considering the incredible amount of rain the night before. The course was fairly empty, so pace of play wasn't an issue. Well worth the hour and 15 minute drive from Pittsburgh. I will be back.

Great Day

Lucky to get a warm day in December in West Virginia. Great to get a tee time on an outstanding golf course “Hit Deal”.

Really enjoyed the round

Worth the drive from Pittsburgh

I have been wanting to play this course for years. Well worth the wait. Excellent fairways, greens, and tee boxes. Very well maintained. Sprinkler and 200, 150, and 100 yard markers. Staff very nice. Good food and beer options. I will come back to shoot better since I now know a little about the course. Very minor complaints. For the regular rates they charge a GPS system should be on the cart. If no GPS then the score card of tee markers should have some sort of distance to bunkers, doglegs, ponds, etc. I lost several shots because I did not have the correct game plan on each hole. The other issue is many blind shots to the greens. This is the standard in Western PA/WVU but seeing the pin makes a big difference . Other than that great course and I have played over 100

What a gem

This course is in phenomenal shape. The layout is amazing and there are so many holes that stand out. Pace of play was just a little longer than I am used to but didn't hinder my experience. The 10 dollar golfnow deal honestly feels like robbery. This course is amazing and will play over and over again.

I really enjoyed my experience at speidel Palmer course. It was very wet but the greens were perfect . Bring a rangefinder because the distances aren't well marked and the greens are huge!

Great Time

The course was in good shape and the staff was very nice.

The course got rid of the cart GPS systems they used to have last year and we were not aware of that prior to going. Luckily one in the group did bring their GPS.

Enjoy the views. You'll have plenty of time to admire nature.

A quality golf course. Unfortunately, extremely slow play and no course management. We quit after 12 holes of molasses pace and rode in on the cart path - only to see holes 13-18 unoccupied. Two foursomes completely clogged the course.

The course ranger was remarkably dense about the pace and was beyond rude if not completely confrontational when we pointed out the slow play.

Will not return.

We had a ranger when we were there this past week. We was ridding around pushing people and we got the round done in about 4 hours and 15 minutes. I think they may have fixed this issue or at least maybe there were better people working when I went than during your experience

Beautiful area

Went with my 3 year old son to play Palmer. The course was packed so I asked about playing The Jones course instead. It was wide open and we had a great day

great course

Love every Palmer course I've ever played, this one is no exception. Play there once or twice a year. Pace of play on that Saturday afternoon however became unbearable for me.

Great value

This might be the best shape the course has been in all year. Very few golfers playing on a beautiful day so I had plenty of time to hit an extra shot or putt. Greens were rolling very true. An excellent day of golf

Must Play

Not up to their standards is my guess. Heat has impacted current conditions at Oglebay. Even at sub par conditions, still one of my favorite tracks! Have played here several times this year.
